Meet the Swell Lookbook Models!

Love our new lookbook? Not to toot our own horn, but “toot, toot!” We heart them too! But we’re not taking all the credit, they definitely wouldn’t look so cute without Rochelle, Kalani and Megan…Swell’s newest models. Just in case you didn’t get enough of their unique personalities in the lookbooks, we decided to do some lighthearted interview to prove that they aren’t just a group of pretty faces…

A deep look from the shallow end at Kalani (the ultra smiley girlfriend of an unnamed 9 time world champion surfer):

The New Holiday Lookbooks Have Landed!

There’s a new kid in town, well four really. It’s Swell’s new Holiday lookbooks! Everything we love about this season’s trends are backlit by whimsical and slightly quirky landscapes of bears, motorcycles and a bitchin’ DeLorean. Yeah! And it’s all designed by Southern Californian artist Matt Allen from The Ryde.

Pick your fav look and let us know what you think!
